Therapy Dog

Our Therapy teams visit local nursing homes, hospitals, and group homes where people don't have the love of a pet at their disposal. 

 

We also visit schools and libraries to spread the word on proper care and management of a pet.  And because kids of all ages just like to have fun, our teams add laughs and smiles by performing tricks.

Reading Your Dog

Learn the key to communication between you and your canine friend.   Your therapy training will proceed more quickly and easily when you can read the way your dog is responding to your efforts.  You will learn how to listen to your dog by reading his body language.  And what is YOUR body lanurage telling your dog?

Therapy Dog Training

You must have completed an obedience course to enroll.  Your dog MUST have some self control.

In this course you & your dog will practice your good manners skills maneuvering around obstacles that are common in a nursing home environment. Your dog will learn to be calm even in a situation that may be uncomfortable, how to best maneuver to be easily petted, make controlled approaches to people in wheelchairs/walkers/canes, and you will learn how to be aware of where your dog is, what he is doing and how to keep his tail, feet, eyes & ears safe.  We will have a Therapy Dog Evaluator test you and your dog and when passed you can register as a Therapy team with Therapy Dog International (TDI) or Delta Society
